dirt, gauze, plastic,

dirt, gauze, plastic takes inspiration from a 47 minute video piece of the same name by Graham Schaafsma, an industrial designer currently based in South Carolina. Functioning as an alternative soundtrack to the Scaafsma’s piece, the composition takes the formal methodology and edit culture of the video and co-composes it’s audio. The piece, already an edited and prepared assemblage of captured filmic “sparks,” is handled as a sound source that three distinct processes manipulate further. The original audio evolves within an accelerated evolutionary elongation compressed by the new audio’s divergent methods and variant capture — exaggerating the original piece’s method of selection and mutation, fold and pathway.
